  • Morris, Lindsay (Victoria University of Wellington, 2017)
    In order to carry out assessment of marine stock levels, an accurate estimate of the current year's population abundance must be formulated. Standardized catch per unit of effort (CPUE) values are, in theory, proportional ...
  • Harper, J F (Victoria University of Wellington, 2004)
    When a gas bubble rises in an impure liquid, its surface often has an upper spherical cap with negligible shear stress, a lower spherical cap with negligible tangential velocity, and a very small transition region between ...
  • Pitawala, Sunethra (Victoria University of Wellington, 2019)
    Dynamic weighing has become an essential requirement in a diverse range of industries. Dynamic weighing is different from static weighing in that static weighing involves determining the weight while the product being ...
  • Moy, Caroline (Victoria University of Wellington, 2010)
    This thesis considers the conventional SARIMA model and the EVT-GARCH model for forecasting electricity prices. However, we find that these models do not adequately capture the important characteristics of the electricity ...
  • Dawson, Ellis (Victoria University of Wellington, 2020)
    We investigate strongly graded C*-algebras. We focus on graph C*-algebras and explore the connection between graph C*-algebras and Leavitt path algebras, both of which are $\Z$-graded. It is known that a graphical condition ...
  • Mo, Songbao (Victoria University of Wellington, 2014)
    Graphs, matroids and polymatroids all have associated connectivity functions, and many properties of these structures follow from properties of their connectivity functions. This motivates the study of connectivity functions ...
  • Clark, Ben (Victoria University of Wellington, 2011)
    A tangle of order k in a connectivity function λ may be thought of as a "k-connected component" of λ. For a connectivity function λ and a tangle in λ of order k that satisfies a certain robustness condition, we describe ...
  • Averill, Robin (Victoria University of Wellington, 2009)
    Teacher-student relationships are considered influential for academic achievement and motivation, particularly for students of minority and low socio-economic groups. Teacher care is an essential component of effective ...
  • Smith, Euan George Campbell (Victoria University of Wellington, 1977)
    Aspects of the standard least squares method of locating earthquakes and its extensions are discussed. It is shown that there is a need to carefully separate and distinguish between the statistical and deterministic ...
  • Haslett, Stephen John (Victoria University of Wellington, 1986)
    When applied to a sequence of repeated surveys, the traditional sample survey estimators of means or totals for one time period only, fail to take advantage of any time series structure. Such structure may result from ...
  • McInerney, Michael (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    This thesis establishes results in several different areas of computability theory. The first chapter is concerned with algorithmic randomness. A well-known approach to the definition of a random infinite binary sequence ...
  • Hameed, Ali M. (Victoria University of Wellington, 2008)
    The operation of matroid union was introduced by Nash-Williams in 1966. A matroid is indecomposable if it cannot be written in the form M = M1 V M2, where r(M1),r(M2) > 0. In 1971 Welsh posed the problem of characterizing ...
  • Roberts, Leigh Alan (Victoria University of Wellington, 2001)
    Jack polynomials are useful in mathematical statistics, but they are awkward to calculate, and their uses have chiefly been theoretical. In this thesis a determinantal expansion of Jack polynomials in elementary symmetric ...
  • Jowett, Susan (Victoria University of Wellington, 2019)
    We show that for every n ≥ 3 there is some number m such that every 4-connected binary matroid with an M (K3,m)-minor or an M* (K3,m)-minor and no rank-n minor isomorphic to M* (K3,n) blocked in a path-like way, has a minor ...
  • Simpson, Alex (Victoria University of Wellington, 2019)
    Various spacetime candidates for traversable wormholes, regular black holes, and ‘black-bounces’ are presented and thoroughly explored in the context of the gravitational theory of general relativity. All candidate spacetimes ...
  • Malcolm, Wilfred Gordon (Victoria University of Wellington, 1972)
    The programme of work for this thesis began with the somewhat genenal intention of parallelling in the context of higher order models the ultraproduct construction and its consequences as developed in the literature for ...
  • Barr, Pippin (Victoria University of Wellington, 2003)
    User-interface metaphors are a widely used, but poorly understood, technique employed in almost all graphical user-interfaces. Although considerable research has gone into the applications of the technique, little work ...
  • Kwon, Young-Min (Brian) (Victoria University of Wellington, 2016)
    This thesis illustrates statistical methodology for identifying the effects of explanatory variables, for the response variables with an ordinal nature. The dataset applied to this methodology is a Listening Strategy dataset ...
  • Barr, Pippin (Victoria University of Wellington, 2008)
    Video games are a form of software and thus an obvious object of study in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Interaction with video games differs from the usual understanding of HCI, however, because people play video games ...
  • Harper, J F (Victoria University of Wellington, 2007)
    There are surprisingly many essentially different definitions of continuity even of a real function of one real variable. This paper shows that the definitions in various textbooks published from 1893 to 1992 have some ...
